Want To Save Money?
James started Lock Jock in 1989 with a desire to improve the locksmith industry. He started off as just as a mobile service, and opened his first store in Slidell in 1991. The Picayune store was opened in 1998 and the Slidell store was shut down 2000. In 2009, we were able to open back up in Slidell as Need Keys located in the Hobby Lobby/Office Depot Shopping Center.
On October 24th 2012, the building we were in caught fire. We suffered significant damage and were temporary shut down again. During all the media attention, it was made clear to us that our name, Need Keys, was not the name that fit us. We began noticing even at our Picayune location, that we were not Lock Jock or Need Keys, but the Key Shoppe.
We still maintain Lock Jock as our service end, but our stores are now known as Key Shoppe. Thank you for giving us the name that fits us best!
